Item description for Talk to Me, James Dean by H. Lee Barnes...
Talk to Me, James Dean is a collection of short stories written and published invidually over a period of fifteen years. Three of the stories are best described as rites of passage. The rest are tales of people at crossroads, seekers and troubled souls, finding compassion in themselves or others or for some finding it nowhere. The stories emerge out of the writer's life long affair with the Southwest where he grew up and in which he's lived his adult life. In the backdrop of the stories is the harsh landscape or the harsh urban world of the desert Southwest. These are tough, honest stories about believable people and situations, stories true to the environment that created them.
